• a summer evening with ...In Persona screenings featuring selected artists and curators

Telemach Wiesinger and Andreas Gogol

• Beginning in 2006, we invited artists and curators to present their work in person, thus giving a first hand look into their mind. Every guest is given "carte blanche" in which way they like to show their work. Often changing locations reflect the diversity of the invited artists. These nights are no longer limited to the hot season but we keep the name for this gentle touch of a Midsummer Night's Dream.

Telemach Wiesinger (film) & Andreas Gogol (acoustic performance) at Baiz

august 24th 2006

Telemach Wiesinger decided to take a small reel of 16mm film on each of his trips around the world.

honeycity august 17th 2006

For several years, Udo Rathke has experimented with the compositional possibilities offered by the computer as a medium of painting with other materials.By using small fragments of pictures found on the net or else he creates ever changing paintings of magical light, now transformed, into a delicate succession of color.
Stefan Streck uses found audio pieces, next to his own guitar play, in a similiar way of layered composition to create absorbing collages of sound.
Both are intrigued by the diversity of microcosmic diversity.more

Tobias Schmuecking at Z Bar july 20th 2006

Tobias Schmuecking tells stories by using images. Space, place and encounters do not appear alien to us, but seem to be rather familiar from previous occasions, back then in dream time, or in a different film.
These everyday places, such as a caravan on a hill or a public pool, stay in my memory, like those places of my own blissful experiences.
Klaus W. Eisenlohr


Kim Collmer- forming motion at Rote Loge july 13th 2006

Forming Motion is a night of animation shorts collected from around the world. For this series, animation is depicted as both a connector of images, and as a reminder of the artificiality and tedious nature of its construction. Many artists in this program create a tension between the flow and the construct. Within their work there is a focus on texture, line, movement, light and rhythm and film's ability to contain life and energy. Based on the screening at Inner Spaces Gallery Poznan. more
